I'm pretty sure most votes will go towards not having enough third party games, but I'm still curious. If the Wii U had all the games that the PS3 and 360 had, PLUS the Nintendo exclusives, there literally wouldn't be any point to having a PS360 when you can play all those games on a Wii U.

I'd say their struggle with people thinking they make "kiddie" games or consoles, when they don't, they just make games that have unique (and not always hyperrealistic) art styles and that are actually fun to play. They have been struggling with this image for the longest time, and I still think it's their biggest problem.

Other: Nintendo has always relied both on franchise power as well as their constant innovation and heart. I'm not saying that they won't be quality games, because I don't think any big Nintendo title could be even close to being bad, but honestly, after the E3 direct, what is there separating 3D World from Battlefield 6 or Call of Duty 29: Present Day Gun Shooter? They're both fun games, but they're easy, safe formulas for success.

EDIT: I don't actually find lack of third party support to be that bad. Nintendo has always relied on their 1st party exclusives and having constant 3rd party support and stronger specs never helped the GameCube.

3rd Party exclusives are great, though, but there seems to be plenty already.

It's mostly an image thing, they pretty much allowed the media and their competitors to dictate their appearance. Despite the way a good portion of Nintendo games look they're more challenging and long lasting than most "mature" games out there.

Why is marketing not an option?

Because I'm pretty sure a fair enough amount of people recognize the Nintendo name to not need marketing to know that the Wii U is out.

Nintendo has taken third parties for granted since their jump into gaming. Only this gen have they tried to change this. It sucks that when they did, however, third parties failed to take initiative save for a handful of devs.
